Carers Aware Online Training Courses

Two new e-learning courses are now available ‘Carers Aware’ and ‘Young Carers Aware’.

A carer is anyone who gives unpaid help and support to a family member or friend. If you work with someone who receives or gives care, or you are a carer yourself then one of these courses is for you. One course gives information on and for young carers under 18, and the other is for adult carers. The courses take about 40 minuets to complete and provide a wealth of information on local and national support services, carers rights and financial information.

The courses are available by following these links:

Diabetes education courses

Most people with diabetes only spend around three hours a year with their doctor, nurse or consultant. For the other 8,757 hours they must manage their diabetes themselves.

Managing diabetes day-to-day can be difficult. This is why it’s important people have the knowledge and skills to manage their diabetes so they can live well and avoid complications.

What are diabetes education courses? Diabetes education courses are group sessions led by healthcare professionals or trained peer educators which aim to help you take control of your diabetes and live a full and healthy life. There are specific courses available for people living with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. Course content will vary from course to course, but all courses should suit your needs and be delivered by trained educators. You should be given the opportunity to improve your diabetes management skills, ask questions and meet other people living with diabetes.
